Thread: Stumped

    Question Stumped

    While is FlightSim site if I open a text file for an aircraft I looking at, the text file opens but only for 5-10 secs. the a message appears, "can't open this page". So I either have to copy text file to desktop to read or download aircraft with all the data then read the text file. I can't figure out what's needed to fix the issue in FlightSim for reading test files.

    Are you a beta tester for the new SIM?

    The new sim is currently pre-alpha, as I understand it. I suspect the OP posted in the wrong forum section, and should have been in either FS2004 or FSX forums.

    Westway, you might mention which sim you're currently running, since I doubt it is the new one that is still far from being released.

    Yep, wrong forum. So 'Microsoft Flight Simulator' is for the up-coming FltSim and not for FS9 or FSX. You click 'VIEW', then RIGHT CLICK on text file, then choose 'OPEN IN A NEW TAB'. That might work.

    1. Are you trying to read a text document from a zipped file?
    2. Are you trying to read a text file from an installed aircraft?
    3. If you have Windows 10, & your sim install is in C:\ Program Files,then..
    4. If 3., Reinstall your sim into C:\ with the usual caveats, as described many times on the forums.

    5. Ask in the correct forums please..

    OK, you do realize that you asked in the wrong forum? So you have a problem reading text files associated with the aircraft? Are these text files inside of the aircraft.cfg? Are you opening them in notepad?

    I think I need to restate my issue. I'm using FSX in Windows 10, so while in the FlightSim site I look at a particular aircraft file and while looking at the file I want to read a text file within the folder. When I open the text file it only stays open a few seconds then closes. There are only two ways I can open and read it without it closing, 1) copy text file to desktop, or 2) download entire file then open and read text file. What I'm looking for is a solution to reading the text file while in FlightSim site without it closing out.

    Maybe post your query in the FSX forum, as this forum is for the new Microsoft Flight Simulator that will probably be released next year.

    That's the second wrong post in a week, maybe naming the forum FS2020 wouldn't be so confusing after all?
